Year 11 - what you need to know about Post-16 applications

This is a really important time for all of our year 11 students as they start to consider their options for next year.  All students have access to Mrs Kay, Careers Adviser, who is in school every Wednesday and Thursday.  Students can book an appointment to discuss their plans and the options open to them and ask Mrs Kay any questions about leaving school.  In tutor time, students have been shown various on line presentations from local sixth forms, colleges and apprenticeship providers and have been made aware of forthcoming virtual open days for local further education institutions.   We would advise our year 11’s to apply to colleges and sixth forms by the end of this term, where possible.  The closing dates for applications for local sixth form providers are listed below:


Herts & Essex Sixth Form – Closing date 30th November

The Bishops Stortford High School – Closing date 11th December

Presdales Sixth Form – Closing date 11th December

St Marys Catholic School Sixth Form – 11th December

Epping St Johns Sixth Form – Closing date 15th January
